The bustling city of Gaziantep, Turkey, 438 mi/705 km southeast of Ankara, boasts a fine collection of Roman mosaics at the Gaziantep Museum and is justifiably famous for its food, especially anything made with the local pistachios (fistik), from baklava to kebabs.
Nearby Kilis (40 mi/65 km south of Gaziantep) is rich with ancient buildings. Gaziantep also makes a good base for boating excursions on the Euphrates River, with its partially inundated villages and the imposing Rumkale (a Greek and later Roman fortress) looking down on the waters.
